Over the weekend, a terrorist incident occurred in London. It was not as major as the attacks we have become accustomed to like that in San Bernadino or in Paris, but it was still a terrorist attack nonetheless.

A man on the subway stabbed three people. None had life threatening injuries, but it caused terror. The most interesting piece in this case is the response of bystanders. One man was caught on tape shouting, “You ain’t no Muslim bruv.” Bruv being the equivalent of the American slang “bro”. This phrase caught on and was trending worldwide before too long. I think this is an important response because while these attacks may be done for a “religious” purpose, he was not showing how a true Muslim acts. The bystander is presumed to be a Muslim as well and would not want to be put into the same category as a terrorist like this.
